The Planning/ The Execution

From the moment I met Rachel, I knew this was going to be a love story for the ages. Rachel radiated an infectious happiness that brightened everyone around them, and as her Wedding Planner, my mission was clear – to create a day that perfectly embodied both Rachel and Anthony's love and personalities. The couple booked one of our partial planning packages (Silver). ANNNND they were one of my very first Clients to also booked my Décor Service Package that I had just started offering 6 months before their wedding. Months of meticulous planning and collaboration culminated in a wedding extravaganza that was both romantic and heartfelt. From the elegant floral arrangements that adorned the venue to the carefully curated music playlist that set the tone for the day, no detail was left untouched. We worked tirelessly to ensure that every aspect of the wedding reflected the couple's unique story and journey.

The Setting

Picture this: a picturesque setting with the sun gently kissing the horizon, a gentle breeze rustling through the trees, and love floating in the air like fairy dust. It was a day that epitomized everything dreams are made of, and we were honored to be part of this incredible celebration of love, commitment, and togetherness.

And let's talk about the atmosphere! Laughter echoed through the air, tears of joy were shed, and hearts were filled with pure happiness. From the emotional vows exchanged during the touching ceremony to the energetic dance floor that kept guests grooving all night, the love between Rachel and Anthony was palpable and infectious, creating an atmosphere of love and unity that embraced everyone present.

Of course, no wedding would be complete without amazing food that tantalized taste buds and satisfied cravings. Guests were treated to amazing Mexican food from Pappas Catering, leaving everyone raving about the delectable delights served.

Beyond the aesthetics and the festivities, what made this wedding truly special were the people involved. Family and friends, near and far, gathered to celebrate the union of Rachel and Anthony. Their unwavering support and overwhelming love were evident throughout the day, creating cherished memories that will be treasured for a lifetime.

As wedding planners, our hearts soared witnessing the pure happiness on both Rachel and Anthony's faces. Seeing their dreams come to life and witnessing the joy shared between them and their loved ones is what makes our job so incredibly rewarding.

The Ceremony

Hands down, the ceremony was my most favorite part. The way Rachel and Anthony look at one another makes you absolutely honored to be in the presence of such pu

re, genuine love. There was a little glitch with the audio, but it did not matter. Love and magic was in that room. After the ceremony, Rachel, Anthony, the wedding party and immediate family took some pictures while the rest of the guests enjoyed cocktail hour on the patio. During this time, my team and the catering staff flipped the room to create an elegant space to host Rachel and Anthony's reception. There was so much to do. It took every once of man power in that room, but we got it done just in time.

The Florals + Décor

Rachel and Anthony went the DIY route with their flowers. It simply was not a priority to them. Rachel purchased all the flowers herself. The wedding colors were sage and cream with gold accents. I wish I had photos of the reception. The couple used our Décor Service Package which offers unlimited access to all of our in-house décor. And the those to go with the timeless, classic route of utilizing gorgeous candles as their centerpieces.


I will never forget this day or any of our wonderful meetings that led up to it. Rachel and Anthony have that forever kind of love that we all dream about. Who knows, maybe one day I will get the privilege of planning one of their babies' wedding!
